The Bald Prima Donna

A Bear Pit Theatre Company Production

The Bald Prima Donna written by Eugene Ionesco
Translated from the French by Donald Watson

Directed by Steve Farr

This is a hilariously maniacal assault on the banality of English suburbia. A family is discussed, every member of which is called Bobby Watson; a young couple is alarmed to find that they have been married for years.
